Conference keynotes promise lots of perspectives, but we promise you’ll get a perspective at ARM TechCon you’ve never had before. As in, from 20 feet above the show floor! How, you ask? We’ve just added world-renowned Chris Anderson, the CEO of 3D Robotics, who’ll deploy one of his company’s camera-equipped drones during his keynote to help demonstrate and discuss the future of robotics and drone technology. You know Anderson from his best-seller “The Long Tail” and as editor of “Wired” magazine, now hear what one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” has to say about the maker market, ARM’s role in it, and how you can be a part of the “next industrial revolution.”

Chris will discuss the maker market and how the engineering profession and low-cost development platforms like Arduino now afford opportunities to more easily become a professional “maker” in the electronics, robotics, and drone industries. He’ll discuss this revolution, basing his observations on his latest book, “Makers: The New Industrial Revolution.” For more information on Chris, go here, and to sign up to attend ARM TechCon 2014, go here.
